Food was good. Had a nice selection of crostini’s. Carrot and ginger soup was so-so -a little bland. We sat outside which was a mistake because the valet park was right beside us.

Great place for lunch. Got their around 1130am on a Sunday so was able to self park in the parking lot out front. By the time I left though the parking lot was full and only valet spots available. I had the seafood paella and it was delicious but a much smaller portion than I was expecting for $32. The waiter was attentive. They had a changing room for my baby in the women’s bathroom. It’s hidden in the last stall though so you may have to wait to use it if someone is in that stall. There is a cute boxwood wall on the patio that serves as a good photo op!

Entree was good but I felt the service was really poor. Dirty entree plates left on the table for 15 min.. no clean... no one checking on us...
Every time they brought food .. never knew who got what...
Had the sorbet for dessert.. like bland ice.
Disappointed but pretty place. Won’t go back. Too many choices in Houston.

This was our first time at Fig & Olive, and it was just such and excellent choice for brunch. Outstanding service and wonderfully delicious food, light music playing in the background. It was fun. Highly recommended! We will definitely come back multiple times.

We were caught off guard when we realized the restaurant was located in the mall. But upon walking in, we found the Thursday night band strumming to upbeat light relaxing music that made you forget where you were.
Greeted with smiles even when we were late for our reservations and seated at a clean crisp linen table . The waiter stopped, introduced himself as well as the GM who was walking around checking tables and service.
We were given the Restaurant week menu along with the regular one. Scanning them both I was overwhelmed with which one to order from. But since it is restaurant week, why not.
Started with the trio of their olive oils and fresh baked bread. Yum!
We ordered Tuna tartare, gazpacho soup, Salmon and mussels were all fabulous and perfectly tasty.
What I was very impressed was with no rush serving. They asked if we were ready for our next course before bringing it out. Our wine stayed perfectly chilled on ice thought our dinner.
Looking forward to getting back and trying many of the other dishes that read like a melted butter on perfectly toasted bread! You just want to eat it all up!

Waitress very accommodating, but the kitchen turned out food so slowly that it took us hours to finish our meal. One diabetic person started having problems because the food wasn’t coming. Ran out of the dessert that half our party ordered, although the chef was very nice and made a special dessert for us.We were then accidentally overcharged $40 per couple—-manager came and made it good, Took a long time. Also women’s restroom was not clean – don’t expect that in a restaurant at this level.

awesome food. will definitely return. Also bought their own olive oil. I wished I bought more. I appreciate the fact that they don't sales talk you about what they're selling. It's just so good that makes you curious where it came from or what those bottles displayed are.

I tried their HRW dinner. Our server was Mag, and he was amazing. He made our dining experience just much better! Only thing made us little disappointed was they were out of two entrees off from their five entree options. And couple of food came out little cold and very blend. Maybe we should just come back for regular dinner next time.

Food was good - we did the restaurant week menu. Presentation on the steak could have used some work but flavors were good and service was excellent. We were sat in the "quiet room" which was nice but somewhat awkward

First time visit and had the Restaurant Weeks lunch gazpacho and Fig and Olive salad. The soup was perfect! Very flavorful and not too spicy. Salad was also very good. Since it was a special occasion, we splurged and shared the cheesecake with cherries. It not overly sweet. Just how I like it. Can’t wait to go back and try something else.

Our service was very slow, but our server was attentive overall. Our drinks came out almost 20 minutes after being seated. It was a late brunch seating the restaurant wasn’t busy and food came out very cold.

The service at this restaurant was probably the worst I have seen in a long time. From the hostess to the waiter, no one was interested in actually serving the patrons. Food was actually pretty good but the experience was so awful that I won’t be back.
